Digitally augment analog text.
Bringing together ideas studied in digital document spaces and existing word-scale visualizations.
How it works
The Textension platform automatically adds visualizations and natural language processing applications to analog texts, using any web-based device with a camera. After taking a picture of a particular page from a book or uploading an existing image, our system builds an interactive digital object that automatically inserts modular elements in a digital space.
